J’ai eu beaucoup de mal avec ce tome.
Déjà j’avais pas mon petit carnet avec les noms sous la main, du coup, j’ai ramé avec les persos déjà connus.
Mais en plus, on nous rajoute toute une troupe de gamins et un nombre impressionnant de personnes ayant le même nom de famille, ce qui fait que je me suis retrouvée toute embrouillée (pourquoi tout le monde s’appelle Nishizono ou Amamiya sérieusement ?).

En plus, il y a du y avoir un saut dans le temps, car Tetora, le gamin cingl

After the masterpiece of Volume 4, we walk into this volume. It plays off of various horror tropes as well as tries to recap most of what has happened in the previous collections. There is also an attempt at dark humor - or at least a lighter tone - as the shift in central character moves from our confused and flawed MPD detective to the bumbling Detective Sasayama. The premise is too much of a gimmick to take seriously. However, the strong end scene promises better things from future volumes.

I love these. I have no idea what's happening. I don't know who anyone is, mostly because several of the characters are more than one person, and there are more than one of some of the people they are. But whatever is going on is weird and twisted and bloody, with random gratuitous nudity. The art has that great "detached" manga feel, so no matter how much chaos spills out of the story, everything is viewed with the same patient attention to detail and almost clinical tone, which adds to the dis ...more

Volume 5 finally admits that there are involved more countries than just Japan in this story which is intriguing. I finally am able to see difference between two of main character's personalities and author shows more of main plot revealing only a little at the time. It's kinda still confusing with all Lucy Monostone deal but I hope it will be explained in the near future. Great volume.

Ugh! I'm done! Half of this doesn't make sense and the other half is just a meandering mess of a plot that goes nowhere. The first few volumes showed some promise, but I just can't keep trying anymore!

This volume feels kinda klunky compared to the last 4. The Mystery gets deeper and the violence is there but I think this volume kind of flows a tad bit choppy, hence the star deduction. I really hope the next 4 volumes are better flowing than this one!

Gitu itu anak2 SMP sok2an jadi penegak kebenaran, bunuh2in orang dewasa yang ngeselin, tapi pas giliran mereka terdesak, begging2 gak mau dibunuh... Dan ternyata anak kecil yang selamat dari Toguchi ternyata adalah Nishizono kedua.. mystery keeps rolling...

Continues with the gore, conspiracy, and confusion. Adds in an ability of one character to transfer his personality into another person, which kind of takes this out of the realm of vaguely plausible, and into the realm of supernatural. Not sure I like that aspect, but ok, I'll let it go.

Getting far more sci-fiy now. I'm liking it a lot. Hard to keep myself from reading volumes six and seven right now.
